I'm having an issue with a shared library called libsdl. What I'm trying to do actually is to start up a game engine called GCCG (Generic Collectible Card Game). All the necessary packages were installed for the engine, however when I run the command
./Mtg it gives me the following:
./ccg_client: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
From the error message, it seems clear that the libSDL libraries are either not installed or they cannot be accessed/are miss-located. After checking my packages with
dpkg --get-selections | grep libsdl I found out that all the libSDL packages are installed... so just to make sure, I used
sudo apt-get purge on all of the libSDL packages and made a clean install on all of the libSDL packages, however, the result is still the same.
Furthermore, when I use
apt-file search libSDL-1.2.so.0, to locate the so-called "missing libraries", I get this as a result:
So, as I figure it, they are there... but they are not shared?
